David Sandberg set to direct Zombiebrother


David Sandberg is set to direct his first major Hollywood movie: a film adaptation of the Chinese comic Zombiebrother.  Actor Channing Tatum is producing the film.

In the summer of 2014, Sliperiet was the hub for the production team behind Kung Fury- the international crowd funding phenomenon. The movie- based on David Sandbergs idea- is a cop movie set in a 1980s future universe. Since the movie was released David has relocated to Hollywood where he has been working on the sequel, Kung Fury II.

We are super proud of David and look forward to seeing his next masterpiece!
